Waves: Light And Sound Quiz!

In our physics class, we got to dive deeper into the topic of waves, light, and sound. With the scheduled monthly test coming up it is important to ensure you are on your feet when it comes to what we have covered so far. Give it a shot and see if you should hit the books one last time before the test!
